I did some reading on NEAT (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) and I'm totally hooked. It's basically all the small movements that you do throughout the day that add up to burn calories, including just sitting and standing. The studies I read, one from a very reliable medical journal said that increasing your NEAT can burn an additional 300 to 1000 calories per day. Are you kidding me!? Since reading this I've been moving nonstop, tapping my feet at my desk, waving my arms while going to the bathroom, everything. I'm just going to keep moving!

Thinking back I used to act like this when I was in college when I got so slim, I was always on the move but never exercised.... it was the little things! I was also working at a pizza place eating pizza for supper every night and still lost 30 lbs!
